Ekiti govt, APC disagree over alleged Fayose’s insensitivity to workers’ plight




The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has described Governor Ayodele Fayose’s Christmas Dubai trip as a reckless insensitivity to the workers’ plight. The party said it was a height of irresponsibility by the governor to embark on private comfort abroad while state workers live in miserable conditions during festive Yuletide season.

Specifically, the party accused the governor of refusal to pay workers salary for three months while embarking on Christmas foreign trip.

But in a quick reaction to the allegation, the Commissioner for Information, Mr Lanre Ogunsuyi, said APC is following their usual ludicrous accusation and commentary.

Ogunsuyi said, “The governor is on holiday like every other worker who has worked conscientiously throughout the year, it was not an official journey and it means the governor will be responsible for all the expenses, because he traveled as Mr Fayose and not as Governor Fayose.

“APC is talking having lost all relevance. Every worker in Ekiti has been paid October salary, unless the party has a different calendar, what is outstanding is November and December salaries and the people could understand the reason behind it.

But the APC’s Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, in a statement described the governor’s Sunday trip to Dubai as the height of insensitivity and wickedness for a governor who always calls himself peoples’ governor.
